It’s Friday and it does look like we have a break in the unpredictable monsoon weather. I gave Bolt a nudge on his Line account to see if he wanted to hang out and go for a short ride around Salaya while I checked out a rental property for my mate Todd. If you don’t know who Bolt is, he also goes by the name Saifaa which was the nickname he was given when he first came to Thailand 10 years ago. He also has his own YouTube channel which I think is worth checking out and you’ll find the link below. This was our first meetup and given the unpredictable nature of the rains in the Thailand wet season, we had no plans to go for a long ride but once we can get some helmet comms sorted out, we do plan to check out more of the local area on our bikes. We did find the property that was listed on the website and shot some footage of the local area for Todd. We then headed out to look at some condo units where Bolt lives but we had to pack away the cameras because the weather looked like it was about to bucket down.

Today I meet up with Bolt again at Salaya and we take a short ride to Little Tree Garden Cafe. I've been to this cafe a couple of times before and it really is a great garden cafe setting.
For today's ride, we trial phase 2 of our new ride video format where our Discord members ride along with us with a live video feed exclusive for them.
As promised, here is the long play version of the ride for those people who want to experience the real Thailand on 2 wheels
